Something so simple, yet something so life-changing. Real love. Being love. Feeling love.
Something that asks us to deeply explore all that we have been ‘taught’ about what love is, and rather examine the truth of what love actually looks like in our actions, our thoughts, our way of life.
Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh died today at the age of 95, and without knowing of his passing until a reader shared with me Friday evening, I picked up his book How to Love yesterday afternoon to reread. Recommended to me last year to explore by a trusted person, I read it then, I read it again, and I will do so as a resource of reminder to ground me and to bring more mindfulness to how I engage with the world.
As this week came to a close, I read the book cover to cover, and I think you would find great value in reading it as well, perhaps in one sitting also, but no matter how many hours or days or weeks you choose to take to explore Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings of mindfulness, if you are looking for wisdom on how to love, this book will teach you how to BE love, and that, that is the key to loving.
A short book (124 pages) and small in size (4″x6″), but a book of sage wisdom from a human being the global community was fortunate to have had in our world.
